I came across two videos that never made it onto my website from early last year. One of the videos talks about what my studio is all about and the other is an introduction into my series on which I am currently working titled Black and White Series. I included the painting above as an example of my Black and White Series. Enjoy!
I am currently building on my Synesthetic Memories series that I began in 2010. The work is focusing on washes and my advances in line intended to have a vein-like quality. Instead of just using black and white as in my piece Synesthetic Memories my new work in process uses warm tones created from conte and brown washes.One of the new things I am experimenting with is grease pens to create a different kind of gritty texture.
I am continuing my Black and White Series and like in my previous paintings in my Black and White Series, I am experimenting insulation foam. However, I added moss and duct tape to this work, as well as, collage to create different textures to this new work. I am also inserting golds to create warm tones in this work.
